Thriving And Well-Funded

There is a new app called Thrive Market that  will allow you to buy natural and organic products right from your smartphone. 

I guess there are a lot of major personalities who think this is a good idea because they funded it.

Investors include John Legend, Zoe Saldana, Sofia Vergara, Dr. Mark Hyman, Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra, Mark Sisson, Jillian Michaels, Brian Lee (of Honest.com), Blake Mycoskie (of TOMS Shoes), Gary Hirshberg (of Stonyfield Farm), Mark Rampolla (of Zico Coconut Water) and David Barber (of Blue Hill Farm).

That’s a pretty impressive list. With that many notables, Thrive Market is sure to get a lot of publicity. Tech Crunch did a nice piece on this app. 

The company claims to have more than 200,000 paying members. Thrive Market charges $60 a year and has two fulfillment centers: Commerce, California and Batesville, Indiana. It  is based in Los Angeles. Thrive Market is exceeding all sales expectations, even though it’s not profitable yet. There’s no rush. It was funded by $58 million to date.

  1. There is also a very good iOS app that was actually out before the Android version.
    It’s available on the iTunes store and is rated 5 stars

  2. There an iOS version of the Thrive Market app so you might want to update/correct you story. Here’s the link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/thrive-market/id1077909668?mt=8

    In fact, Thrive Market launched an iOS app FIRST and then launched the Android version later. You will see that the ratings for the iOS app (and Android App) are pretty high, as they are really well designed and easy to use.

    I hope that is helpful.

    • I am not sure how I made that mistake since the photos I posted came from the iPhone app. Thank you very much for writing me and the correction. I will edit my words now.
